Hi,

I've posted couple of photos of my car in my hello thread but because there's some actual and constant progress on the car I might as well start a build thread here.

So here it is when I first got it:

And this is how it roughly looks like now:

Recently I've been converting my mighty EV2 engine to bike carburetors. It's getting there, slowly but surely. Here's the video of when I got it to start for the first time :)

Cheers and wish me luck!

I want to find myself one of these :D You have a clean one there. I can definitely see the potential, like all old cars haha.

If it was a tad lower and had a front lip, it would be very nice.

I'm working on it mate, I've got the lip off Peugeot 208 I think which looks like it's going to fit very nice... Lowering isn't that easy as it runs panhard rod with rear axle beam and torsion bars on the front... Obviously there's no parts available for it off the shelf and there's no actual forum for them in UK as there's like handful of them left..

Oh yeah, forgot about that. most people change the whole suspension setup altogether. Like from the newer Civics.

How? Would you be able to post a link to a build with something like that done?
